Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf - Mini Maiden Version

Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf - Mini Maiden Version

"Absolutely scrumptious."

We wanted to bring the luster of silk yarns to our Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf for spring. Silk has such an elegant way of combining surface coolness with a bit of insulating warmth. Hand Maiden's gorgeous colorways just shine upon this luscious single-ply strand of half-wool, half-silk, making it the perfect accessory yarn for the transition between seasons.

Click on "The Free Pattern" tab, and then choose a lovely shade for your delectable scarf. One skein is more than enough to make the large size of our super-versatile Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf.

GLOSSARY: Inc = increase (knit into front then into back of same stitch); K = knit; K2Tog = knit 2 stitches together; K3Tog = knit 3 stitches together; St(s) = stitch(es); YO = yarn over (bring yarn forward between needles, then back over right needle).


Prepare yarn: No matter what yarn you use, it’s important to reserve a little more than half of it for the second part of the scarf (decrease section). If you’re using two skeins, weigh your yarn in grams; if there’s a discrepancy in weight, begin your scarf with the lighter ball. If you’re using one large skein, divide skein in half by weight before you begin, using a kitchen/postal scale.

Set-up rows: Cast on 3 sts.
Row 1 (RS): Knit.
Row 2 (WS): Inc 1, Inc 1, K1. (5 sts)
Row 3 (RS): K1, K2Tog, YO, K2.
Row 4 (WS): Knit.
Row 5 (RS): K2, YO, K1, YO, K2. (7 sts)
Row 6 (WS): Knit.
Note: Pin a marker to the right side (RS) of work to help you keep track of where you are in the pattern. With RS facing you, the right-hand edge of scarf (neck edge) will stay straight, while the left-hand edge will angle out with your increase rows then back in again with your decrease rows to form the depth point of your triangle.

Increase section: Row 1 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 2 sts, YO, K2. (1 st increased)
Row 2 (WS): Knit.
Row 3 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 4 sts, K2Tog, YO, K2. (0 sts increased)
Row 4 (WS): Knit.
Repeat Rows 1–4 until you have 60 (72) sts (or until desired center depth and you have a bit more than half of your yarn left to complete second half of triangle), ending with Row 2. Note: Notice that every RS row creates an eyelet hole at both edges, but only Row 1 results in a net increase. If you see YOs on your needle, it’s time for an even-numbered (plain knit) row. On oddnumbered (increase) rows, glance below to the prior RS row as you near the end of the row. If you see a K2Tog just to the right of the YO, you’re currently on a Row 1 (no K2Tog required); if you see a simple knit just to the right of the prior YO, you’re currently on Row 3 and it’s time for a K2Tog!

Decrease section: Row 1 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 5 sts, K2Tog, YO, K2Tog, K1. (1 st decreased)
Row 2 (WS): Knit.
Row 3 (RS): K2, YO, K2Tog, K to last 4 sts, K2Tog, YO, K2. (0 sts decreased)
Row 4 (WS): Knit.
Repeat Rows 1-4 until 8 sts remain, ending with Row 2. Note: If you see YOs on your needle, it’s time for an even-numbered (plain knit) row. On oddnumbered (decrease) rows, glance below to the prior RS row as you near the end of the row. If you see a K2Tog just to the left of the YO, you’re currently on a Row 3.

Row 1 (RS): (RS): K2, YO, K3Tog, YO, K2Tog, K1. (7 sts)
Row 2 (WS): Knit.
Row 3 (RS): K2, YO, K3Tog, K2. (6 sts)

Row 5 (RS): Knit.
